My hubby and I are thinking about trying soon. We're both 27 years old. We have been together for 10 years and married for 3 years. Our goal has been to have a child before we turn 30. Our parents were both young when they had us and it has always been nice to have younger parents to relate to and were always very active in our lives. We want to be able to have the same relationship with our child/ren. My next obgyn appt is in 2 weeks and I was planning on stopping my birth control after this month so I could start getting on my natural cycle and begin trying. However....the big "if" keeps coming up. We'd like to get pregnant in the early fall to hopefully have a spring baby. I just love that time of year and our families have tons of December babies so we want to break that trend. We want to get pregnant in the early fall so should we start trying sooner in case it takes longer than expected. But what if we get pregnant right away. Should we wait to start trying until August or September instead of July? I know we're only talking about a couple months difference so it's not a huge deal. However, my husband is starting a brand new job in 3 weeks so he wants to get settled in his new position. We have been together for so long that it's hard to imagine not just being the 2 of us to do whatever we want but at the same time we both know that this is something that we both want. The big question is how do you know when the time is right? Ultimately I have to make the decision of when to go off of birth control. The hardest part is not knowing how quick or how long it will take to get pregnant. We'll both be happy when we do and our parents and friends are starting to ask when we'll have kids so it's definitely something I think about almost everyday.
